Officials with Harris County Precinct 4 continue to work on acquiring right of way for a project to widen a portion of Cypress North Houston Road from two to four lanes from Jones Road to where it ends at Perry Road. Plans also call for extending the road through to FM 1960 as a four-lane concrete pavement section, and adding traffic signals at Misty Moss Drive, Autumn Mills Drive and FM 1960. Officials hope to put the project, estimated to cost $7.9 million, out for construction bids in the third quarter of 2019.
Pamela Rocchi, director of Precinct 4’s Capital Improvement Projects Division, said getting to the point where the project can be put out for bids will also be contingent on utility companies, which are working to relocate utility lines in the project area. She said the bid and award process could last about 90-120 days, after which a preconstruction meeting will be scheduled and the contractor will be given notice to proceed with the project.
Timeline: third quarter 2019 (target for sending project out for bids)
